During Wednesday’s night game featuring the Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls, some action kicked off in the stands when a drunk Miami Heat fan became unruly.
Miami police has to show up and first tried to get him to come quietly with them, but he wouldn’t budge. They gave him another chance before they ultimately had to yank him from his seat.
He proceeded to fight with the officers as they fell down several rows of seats.
According to an arrest affidavit, an officer approached Mato and asked him to calm down, but Mato continued screaming. Police said the officer could smell alcohol on Mato’s breath.
When a second officer approached and told Mato he would have to leave, Mato again refused to comply and took a “fighting stance,” the affidavit said.
Police said Mato “was creating a hostile situation and disturbing the patrons from their routine behavior.”
The video shows the officers grab Mato and remove him from his seat. It also shows Mato struggling with the officers as they fall down several rows of seats.
